Portal on Public Awareness, Education and Participation

The Portal on public awareness, education and participation was established to facilitate exchange of information on activities and to provide access to resources relating to the implementation of the different elements of the Programme of Work on public awareness, education and participation concerning the safe transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms (LMOs), extended until 2020 with revised priority areas.

The Portal provides an overview of activities related to Article 23. It also contains resources to carry out these activities. These include an awareness survey template that can be used to conduct biosafety awareness surveys. A progress map that tracks and monitors progress in the implementation of the Programme of Work and its priority areas by Parties is also available.

As a result of the online discussion on public awareness regarding LMOs, held in 2018, a bulletin board was established to facilitate the exchange of resources relevant to public awareness.

An overview of past activities is provided in the archive.
